Ford Returns to Buck Celtics, 107-91

BOSTON -- Vin Baker had 28 points and 11 rebounds Monday night as the Milwaukee Bucks gave coach Chris Ford a victory in his FleetCenter debut, beating Boston 107-91.


Andrew Lang had 12 points and 13 rebounds, and Glenn Robinson had 19 points and nine boards for the Bucks, who have won three straight and 5-of-6 Dana Barros led Boston with just 16 points.


Ford played for the Celtics from 1978 to 1982 and coached them from 1990 to 1995, when he was fired by current coach and director of player personnel M.L. Carr. Ford caught on with the Bucks this year, taking on a promising roster that has a chance at the playoffs.


Pistons 98, Raptors 92. In Toronto, Grant Hill scored 27 points and Detroit closed the game with a 10-0 run. Hill added 12 rebounds and scored four points during the run as the Pistons overcame a four-point deficit. Hill's layin tied it at 92-92, and Lindsey Hunter made two free throws before Otis Thorpe tipped in a Hill miss, giving Detroit a 96-92 lead.


Hill's 13-foot jumper with 9.9 seconds left capped the closing spurt. Joe Dumars had 21 points for the Pistons.
